We went for a short 2 night trip and needed somewhere to stay close to Chapel Street. It is a 5 minute walk to the best part of Chapel Street so was perfect. Wasn't too expensive and for what we paid for the room was value for money. The receptionist was also very nice and we felt very welcomed. Thanks!

We stayed in a two bedroomed unit for a week. The reception staff were very helpful, the unit was clean ,tidy, and very comfortable. Our unit was also very quiet. The location was excellent as we were in Melbourne for the Grand Prix at Albert Park.

I have used the 3 bedroom conference unit several times now to teach groups how to speak. It is absolutely ideal because we are totally self contained and have everything we need near by.

The room is ideal for small intimate groups, with the kitchen attached for preparing morning and afternoon tea and having the Prahran Market three minutes walk from the venue means participants can go and buy whatever they want for lunch, no matter what their dietary requirements are. The venue is easy for participants to get to via public transport and having the free car parking for delegates is a really great added bonus.

I live 90 minutes north of the city so I stay over in the unit for the weekend. I can't tell you, as a presenter, what a luxury it is to get everything set up on Friday afternoon and then on Saturday morning roll out of bed, roll down the stairs and be in the conference room checking all the equipment is working while the kettle boils for a breakfast cup of tea. Frequently my crew members stay in one of the other bedrooms and share their bathroom with the participants. My room has its own small ensuite bathroom and walk in robe which makes things really easy for me and gives me a quiet space where I can go while participants have their break out time. Once at the venue, I don't have to worry about battling traffic or being held up - I know everything is set and ready to go and if there are any last minute needs well Officeworks and 2 major supermarkets are 5 minutes walk away and there are a myriad of great cafes and restaurants right on the doorstep.

Sarah the owner is awesome to deal with and Baronia the housekeeper is just delightful and always makes sure everything is just perfect for us. Overall the staff couldn't me more helpful and when the inevitable hiccup occurs, they have always responded well and go above and beyond to ensure my event runs smoothly. Yes, bring ear plugs to block out the doof doof music on the weekends, but during the day its generally really quiet and a perfect venue for a small group.

We stayed with 2 kids in a 2 bedroom apartment over the Easter long weekend - booked at the last minute with staff who were great over the phone. Check in was quick and easy. Value for the place is really dictated by the location, close to shops, cafes and transport - trams, buses, trains all close and easy to use even for a non-Melbourne family with little ones. Rooms were basic but clean and tidy and not too tired. Cooking facilities were OK so we could make a simple pasta for the kids. Kids loved the bath after 2 weeks camping and with 2 more still to come.

Room Tip: We stayed in an upstairs unit that was pretty quiet and may be quieter than those downstairs - I not...

We stayed here in a 3 bedroom apartment. The location is really great, basically behind Prahran market and the Chapel St scene. The booking was easy on-line and check in also very easy. The accommodation was not luxurious but good enough for what we wanted, and had all the essentials. One queen bed was not great, there was a light not working in the kitchen (the only one!) and it was very noisy with loud music at night, but i did have my window open and I'm not sure if it was coming from within the complex or not. I would stay here again, it was sufficient but pricey for what it was.

Was tossing up whether to write this review or not as I really want to be able to get into this place again next year for the tennis. The service during booking the hotel was great, about 4 phone calls from Sarah and the team confirming booking, prices, bed configuration etc. the front desk staff were very friendly and let us dump our bags at reception before the rooms were ready so we could get to the tennis (they also let us name one of their fish!!)
We had a 3 bedroom townhouse it is great with 3 bed two bath all upstairs and a large kitchen and lounge downstairs.
The location is awesome, right on Commercial rd near Prahran Market and next to Chapel st which has all the shopping, restaurants and pubs that you need. You can use the trams but as a non Melbournian I find them a bit confusing so we took the 5min walk straight to Prahran station which is only two stops to Richmond for the tennis or another 2 to the city (10-15mins max)
Only things I can fault this place was that they have a nightclub nearby and you can hear the bass pretty loudly till at least 4am on Fri/Sat and they don't have a pool but not much can be done about either of these issues - only issue they could fix was the water pressure in the showers, the water saving shower heads let out not much more than a dribble.
ALso, if you are getting a taxi make sure that you tell them Quest Prahran in Balmoral st which is actually in South Yarra?!? There is another Quest nearby (5mins drive) which our friends got dropped off at and had to wait 30mins and pay extra $15 for a taxi to the correct address, apparently it happens a bit.
Thanks from Tim and Kate - we will be back

Room Tip: Rooms at the back will get more of the nightclub noise
